Abstract: Situated in the setting of shifting policy, this qualitative research aimed to reveal the reaction of teachers to respond the shifting policy and the impact of professional development they have participated in. Employing five teachers’ categories and classrooms’ activities as the data sources and applying observation, interview and document analysis, it was found that teachers participated in professional development to stay abreast with the latest changing of curriculum, to improve their skill and knowledge and to promote students’ achievement. In addition, it also indicated that professional development has progressively influenced teachers’ performance and changed students’ learning behavior. Hence, this research recommends further research that indicates factors influencing teachers’ performances and students’ learning behavior.
